    You got it! And, I mean, what fun would it be if we didn't all have differing preferences, and if those preferences didn't change? What the heck would we have to talk about? lol

    Need to try one. The end of my right forefinger is gone and I use the round butt of a teardrop now. Might would help me grip it better.

    A side that isn't playable?? Just wait. Eventually someone will find that picking with that side is where they find their best tone

    Hmm, that tail is..interesting... Seems a wee bit of a waste of real estate though to have a side that isn't playable. Something like the Wegen Dipper gives you more pick to hang onto and the three...

    Re: The latest in plectrum technology.....

    I made one with a tail once but quickly realized I was better served learning to manipulate and hold the pick rather than try to find a cure to me being too lazy to learn proper pick technique.

    Re: The latest in plectrum technology.....

    Wonder if it was designed for folks with grip issues? Although most of the folks I know that have that use a modified thumb pick.

    Re: The latest in plectrum technology.....

    It's . . . odd. I guess I can see how the "tail" might help stability, but the whole thing seems kind of large and possibly unwieldy.

    I am, yes and agree and also taking Matt Flinner's Octave course. Something is bound to stick, I figure.

    "Sam Brown Hill" is addictive too - also from Joe's course. Finally have that down. And, you did a great job on Inverness - very smooth. Something for me to aspire to (next).

    My favourite capo is a very cheap guitar capo that I cut to the width of the 8th fret of my octave, then removed the spring and cut that to 2/3 before replacing it again. Then I cut down the two...

    Re: Eastman OM - a one-month review

    That's a nice use of sustain and partial chords on that OM. That's what they're made for when playing melody, in my opinion. The slower tunes where you can really work the sustain of the longer scale...

    What I notice, I can't play anything up to dance tempo, but all the tunes sound curiously different.
